Daihachi Yoshida’s Permanent Nobara is an utterly charming romantic comedy based on popular manga artist Saibara Rieko’s manga series of the same title. The story revolves around Naoko, a young mother who returns to her home village after divorcing her husband. Together with her young daughter Naoko moves in with her mother, Masako, who runs the only beauty parlor in town. The local women go there to pass the time lamenting their bad luck with men and laughing over dirty jokes. Unbeknownst to them, Naoko has been secretly seeing her former teacher, Kashima. Populated by lovable, quirky characters, Permanent Nobara is this love story for grown-ups and a beautifully acted portrayal of feminine strength, compassion and humor.
The Toronto Japanese Film Festival takes place June 7-21, 2012. More info here.
